Welcome to The LDS Organist Blog

The purpose of this blog is to help pianists learn to become true organists. Many individuals believe that if you play the piano you can play the organ, but the instruments differ greatly. While this blog is specifically geared towards members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, much of the information shared can be utilized by all. I hope that the information I share here will help you become an effective organist in your ward, stake, or other congregation.

Feel free to browse and search this blog. It was started in January 2010 and while new posts aren't added very often, this blog contains a wealth of information and is a wonderful resource for all organists. If you're a new reader, you can find the first lesson here: Before We Begin: Acquiring the Essentials. Also, please "like" the corresponding facebook page, which is updated more often. A link is provided on the right sidebar, or you can click here.

Thanks for visiting!

Photobucket Issues--My Apology

I'm sure you can see that the images on my blog are mostly no longer there!  For years I've used Photobucket to host my pictures, but now they want to charge for what used to be a free service.

I've been meaning to revamp my blog, and perhaps turn it into a website, and now I'm going to have to make a decision one way or another on this issue. My biggest concern is cost--I provide this information as a free service, and really don't want to turn it into a business of any kind. That said, I do need to keep my expenses low. If you have suggestions, I'd love to hear them.

I'm so sorry that the images are not showing up! I spent many hours taking and editing the perfect pictures for each post, and it's disheartening to have them look the way they do right now!
